Join the Central Valley Justice Coalition for a night of focused prayer and worship on behalf of those who are trapped in modern day slavery. Prayer is central to all we do – God moves and acts when we gather together in his name!
Monday, April 7 from 6:30p-8p at Northpark Church (Youth Room #202)
We will be praying for God’s freedom and justice to flood our Valley, bringing transformation to the lives of all affected by human trafficking. The time will be guided with scripture, media and specific prayer points.
CVJC invites you to be part of the following upcoming opportunities! Both offer unique experiences that we believe God will use to deepen your understanding of Biblical justice and open your eyes to the realities of modern day slavery in our own backyard.
April 12th: Daughters of the King 9th Annual Women’s Conference
Hear from Jessica Pittman, Director of Central Valley Justice Coalition, on empowering the church to take action in combating Human Trafficking in our local communities.
“The Lord has led our focus to be on the freedom that comes through Jesus Christ, and to launch an awareness of human trafficking so that we may be part of rescuing women from the bondage of sex slavery and prevention,” coordinator Lupe Flores shares.
Details: Rivers of Living Waters Christian Church, 1282 Belmont Avenue, Mendota. 8am–1pm. To register and for more information contact Lupe Flores: 559-217-4394

The Central Valley Justice Coalition is honored to present a breakout session at the 2014 City Summit. The City Summit runs Friday evening, March 14 through Saturday, March 15 at the Fresno First Baptist Church campus, 1400 E Saginaw Way, Fresno 93704.
City Summit is an annual event to bring those in the church together to explore and understand their community and be equipped to minister within it. This year’s theme is “Imago Dei: Seeing In New Ways” based off 2 Corinthians 5:11-20.
“City Summit is a movement that takes seriously the prophet’s call to seek the peace and prosperity of our city (Jer. 29:7) City Summit asks the question, “What is God doing in our city and how can we join Him?” Amidst the challenges that face each neighborhood in our city, we believe the residents have the answer to those challenges. What originally started as a conference to equip those engage in Christian Community Development work has become a rallying point for a new generation to get engaged in God’s Kingdom work in our city.”
It’s not to late to register! Melissa Gomez, new co-Director of CVJC, will be presenting at one of the breakout sessions and you won’t want to miss it.
